Among the 27 Institutes and Centers that comprise the National Institutes of Health, NIAID has a unique mandate, which requires the Institute to respond to emerging public health threats. Toward this end, NIAID manages a complex and diverse research portfolio that aims to expand the breadth and depth of knowledge in all areas of infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases, as well as develop flexible domestic and international research capacities to respond appropriately to emerging and re-emerging disease threats at home and abroad.

Andy Hill Cancer Research Endowment (CARE) Fund

The Andy Hill Cancer Research Endowment (CARE) Fund, under law RCW Chapter 43.348, enables the State of Washington to appropriate a state match of up to $10 million annually to fund cancer research in Washington State. The fund is built on a public-private partnership model and incentivizes additional investment by requiring private or other non-state resources to match public funds. The fund seeks to optimizes the use of public funds by giving priority to research utilizing promising science and technology with a large potential to improve health outcomes.

Fred Hutch Cancer Center

The mission of the Fred Hutch Cancer Center is the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. The Hutch conducts research of the highest standards to improve prevention and treatment of cancer and related diseases. Its cancer research has demonstrated the immune system’s potential to mitigate disease.

Center for Disease Control and Prevention

As the nation’s health protection agency, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. The  CDC also conducts critical scientific studies and provides health information that protects our nation against health threats.

United States Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity

The United States Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) is the contracting and assistance agreement element of the United States Army Medical Research and Development Command (USAMRDC) and provides support to the Command headquarters and its worldwide network of laboratories and medical logistics organizations as well as other non-USAMRDC customers.

Medical CBRN Defense Consortium

The Medical CBRN Defense Consortium (MCDC) fosters collaboration between industry, academic, and not-for-profit partners for advanced development efforts to support the Department of Defense’s (DoD) medical pharmaceutical and diagnostic requirements as related to enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel. Through the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND), the Medical Countermeasures Systems (MCS) Joint Project Management Office seeks innovative, safe and effective medical solutions to counter CBRN threats.

International Partnerships

Worldwide Partnerships with Technology Transfer Accelerate Delivery of Cutting-Edge Medicines to Patients

HDT Bio engages in global partnering through field-limited and territory-limited license agreements to maximize the impact of its technology and products. These partnerships enable patient access across varied markets and regulatory environments, accelerate progress in clinical development, provide broad access to expertise and resources, focus clinical trials in populations most affected by certain diseases, and potentially lead to quicker regulatory approvals. In addition to advancing clinical platform development, this strategy boosts global reputation and lays the groundwork for broader future collaborations. Establishing a presence in multiple regions not only enhances revenue opportunities but also provides valuable feedback to further refine HDT Bio’s platform technology. Through its partnerships, HDT has active research and development activities in the EU, Asia, India, South America, and Africa.
